I love this set! it makes my new room look luxurious. As other reviewers have stated, the contrast is not as high as it looks in the picture. The fabric is a shiny champagne color and the design is embroidered on in a very similar color. Since i read the other reviews, i knew what to expect. The comforter is heavier than expected, which during our cold winter nights will be a bonus. The sheets are also much nicer than i anticipated for a "bed in a bag" set. Overall i am extremely pleased with this set!!!
